Session 5: Friday, October, 1st, 2021, 11:00am – 12:30pm

From the complexity of the human gut to advanced control of microbial processes – this years’ microbiology session explores again the cutting edge technologies in microbial single-cell analysis.

Every person is individual and has a very personal microbiome dependent on the individual habits and lifestyle as well as genetic predisposition. Although the gut microbiome is highly diverse and individual, common principles and functions of individual key species were identified. In a similar way, natural bioprocesses rely on the interplay of many different species. Also here, the identification of functional subpopulations is key for process management and control. 

Novel concepts and applications for single cell analysis and single cell based microbiome management will be presented. Further technological advances will complement this session.
